The Department currently has no plans to make an estimate of the cost to the National Health Service of violent crime.

However, the report ‘The economic and social costs of crime’, published by the Home Office, includes information on the costs associated with physical and emotional harms as a consequence of crime for health services. The report is available at the following link:
